A few more from Humboldt Craigslist...

61 cm Specialized Expedition
They've got it listed as a "1993" bike, so maybe an '83?




61 cm late 80s Cromor Bianchi
Can't make out a model name, but I'm gonna guess it's a Trofeo.




56 cm 1986 Centurion Facet
Single-speed conversion with a flip-flop rear wheel. I considered buying it, but a 56 is too small for me. The owner was cooperative and a good dude, at least via e-mail.



All three have been up for a while, so may have been sold.

Surprised this $200 Colnago F&F are still around. But it's still there. https://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/b...172342297.html

Has the name Nill Toulme painted into it. Surprised about the lack of anything on the seat stay caps. A couple of those clovers sure do have loooong stems.

Curious if Nill is this guy, it would fit. https://www.linkedin.com/in/nill-toulme-61236513

Custom Colnago frame/fork. Columbus SL or similar. I believe the taller frames were slightly thicker gauge than SL but not 100% on that. Very light weight in any case. 36x24 (70mm) Italian threading. Frame has some surface blemishes. No dents or dings. Stamped 'C10' on rear driveside dropout.

I have never seen sloppy clovers on a Colnago...maybe just bad touch-up paint...

The connecting lines between the leaves are usually straight and clean as a whistle...and the stem is usually more triangle like...these look a bit blobby...and no pantographing on the brake bridge either...

I consider this C and V

That's a time travel bike...so sleek it moved to the future in 2014 as a classic NOS!

2014. 58 cm. Full campagnolo , all original. Never ridden.

Such a nice shade of blue

Colnagos were notorious for frames having "sloppy" club cut outs, in the seventies. Probably what started the counterfeiting rumours...
I remember excuses being made, saying how well they rode, and them bting given a pass, regarding their detail and finish work, especially compared to the work of the rising generation of American frame builders. The pantographia was spectacular, but close comparisons berween Masi, De Rosa, and to a lesser extent Gios frames of the time, showed Colnago was a little late to the party. That being said, clearly Ernesto shifted course there, and has never since been found wanting.. I would guess thar contracting out production, to multiple small shops exacerbated the issue as well.
Cheers, Eric

Seller mentions rear dropout being stamped C10, I think . be interesting to know what is stamped on the steering tube...

Interesting no-name alloy frame and fork. Looks more Vitus-y than anything else. Probably too much money.

I'm almost positive that's a 1st generation Vitus 979.
That front hub looks like a Bullseye.
The seatpost, on the other hand, is a complete miss. Didn't even hit the hay bales.

Carlton Catalina, Capella Lugs, $100

Nice for the age looking Carlton. Mostly original (at least from the included pictures), saddle swapped out, snapped top tube cable guide and stop it appears. Who doesn't love a cottered crank!? Had to look at this a while before I realized it was beyond my N+1. In a few messages with the seller, he indicated he measured the top tube at 57cm. Forget the exact dates I was matching it up to, but 1960s of course. Reynolds 531 plain tubes. Chrome on fork (not many pictures) looks amazing for 55 years...

I passed on a yellow 22" ladies' for $200 about 30 years ago, the only other one I've seen. Neat bikes.

that's really clean, and a nice price for something like that, in that condition, with what's included. i'm glad i am not closer to that!

I thought I wrote the same, but see now I didn't. I thought it was weird also.

And related to the other chrome frame a post or two later .....

As someone who has one Motobecane-branded, I concur. It most certainly must be.

I'm not usually one for straight blade forks, but it's perfect on this Raleigh Technium. Anyone know the story behind these bikes? Do the lugs have issues like other early aluminium frames?

This is asked frequently, and frequently the response is, "No."

In the late '80s Peugeot produced two road bikes with lugged/bonded aluminum frames, the Pechiney process bikes named after the factory where they were produced. The Comete had Euro components and the Galaxie had the first-gen 105 group. I had a Galaxie. I was working for Peugeot at the time of the recall and never actually saw a frame that came unbonded but evidently there were a very few failures and the recall was instituted as a safety action by the company. Don't know if other such frames like A.L.A.N. had problems.

Not mine.
